. now at 10:00, closing in on the kickoff. the last minute moves the redskins are making mr. their playoff showdown with the packers. plus what it will cost you if you're looking for a last-minute ticket to the game. and at this hour millions of people dreaming of powerball tickets. thank you for joining us. i'm lauren demarco. matt is off.
we begin in a place a lot of redskins fans doubted they would be in when the season started. getting ready for a playoff game. but we are here, less than 24 hours until the burgundy and gold take on the packers. brody logan joining us now. this is just a lot of excitement. >> it is a lot of excitement. the wait is almost over. and i was saying tonight is like christmas eve for redskins fans. in their stockings some good news though coming out of green bay. the packers starting quarterback sam shields is out for tomorrow's game and that's huge. he's known for his speed. with shields out jackson should be prime for a big day tomorrow. jackson is one of the best deep threats in the nfl catching touchdowns of 56, 63 and 77 yards this year.
not show up tomorrow. >> i feel like there's a little bit of luck in the air and i am positive skins are going to do well tomorrow. how's that? >> sounds great. >> and the game, it's technically sold out but if you're still looking to get a ticket to the game, there is a bit of good news. prices online on some websites have been coming down. it doesn't mean it's going to be cheap to get into the stadium but we checked stub hub and found the lowest price ticket is going for $139. most of the lower level tickets were going in the $500 range. there were some tickets at mid field and in the dream seats that were selling for more. so will the weather be an issue at kickoff tomorrow? gwen that's the big question. it sounds like layers, layers, layers. >> definitely layers. it's going to be cold. we've got wind chill to talk about, lauren. and those temperatures are going to start to really drop as we move through into that game. so you know what?
you need your funds to get the tickets but with the weather we can't buy the forecast. we have three things we're concentrating on for that big game tomorrow. showers, temperatures and wins. those are the three areas. let's begin with the showers. already moving in tonight is the wet weather and it's going to get heavy in the overnight hours. the good news about the rain is that it's anticipated to really taper off early enough that by the time the game starts it will be dry and it will be clearing. can't say the same for your tailgating so just keep that in mind. next let's talk about the temperatures. hour by hour, here's what we're talking about. we are heading for a high into the 60s, but those temperatures are gradually going to start to really drop as that game progresses. so it's going to be pretty cold with some wind chills. wind, that seas the next category. we've got some significant winds to talk about. they're going to be gusting and will produce some wind chills. by the time the game kicks off, 34 mile per hour wind gusts and
by the time the game is over, those winds will be gusting at 34 miles an hour. so i can't rule out maybe a little light passing shower during your tailgating, it will be dry but windy, halftime, windy and cold bundle up. your forecast a little later. >> metro's track work schedule will be adjusted to accommodate fedex field tomorrow. starting at noon the track work will end for the weekend and will allow train toss run on a regular sunday schedule. scheduled work on the red, yellow and green lines will continue as planned. our pregame coverage begins at 2:00 p.m. tomorrow. kickoff is at 4:40. and you can join our playoff conversation on twitter using the hashtag #httron5. >> the power ball drawing will
take just before 11:00 p.m. tonight. a record jackpot is at stake. $900 million. people bought tickets in droves. what is going on? you are live in northwest for us for tonight. >> reporter: earlier today this store was packed but now take a look. no more people, no more lines. that's because the cutoff for tonight's drawing was 10:00. actually just before 10:00. so nobody else can buy tickets. now usually the choice is do you pick your own numbers or go with the quick pick. let me explain to you why it's not smart to pick your ow. in fact 70% of winners are quick pick tickets. that's because if you go with birthdays, nine is june 7th, my husband's is june 20th, most of the numbers that get picked are up here. all of these numbers don't get picked usually when people go with that strategy and that is why. so if you already bought a ticket, good luck to you. now i have my friend jr here.
you were telling me this crazy story about the ticket buying today. what happened? >> i felt so sorry for this guy. he was here for two hours and he told me he had a system for winning. i said what's your system? >> he said if you buy your tickets just before the cutoff you can get the winning ticket. unfortunately he waited too long, 10 seconds too long so he couldn't get a ticket. >> he bought a ticket and it was actually for wednesday's drawing. imagine that, two hours and he didn't get it. >> i felt sorry for the guy and i was going to give him one of mine but i said no. >> not the winning strategy. take a look at some video earlier. this store was packed. there were so many people in line because you hear $900 million because everybody wants a chance at that. some fun facts for you. the more people that played, the less likely somebody will win but it does increase the odds that somebody will win. so good side/bad side. we did talk to some other people that were out there today about
their plans and strategies, if you will. >> i have a great system. >> i'm just excited. it's such a big i'm just going to buy one ticket and see what happens. >> of course everyone always asks. what would you do about the money? >> no. i'm not expecting to win. >> it's worth a few dollars. >> what would you do with the money? >> pay off any debts and distribute to my families and help my nieces with a college fund. >> all right. so we did some math for you, the jackpot 900 million but if you picked the cash option, you would get $558 million, but after maryland taxes you would take home 369 million still not bad considering a ticket is just 2 bucks. if nobody wins tonight it rolls over for wednesday it will be $1.3 billion. the owners of this store tell me
they don't want that. it was so much work dealing with the crowds all day. i didn't mean to cut you off. you said you have a strategy. >> i've been given reason to believe that if i talk with this lady, she's a psychic in jamaica. so i called her. >> and she gave you numbers? >> no. she said if i knew that, mon, i would not be doing this. >> that's not only a strategy but it is a straight story. i will send it back to you. i hope that you bought your ticket. >> you bet we did. we've all been heading over to the stores buying them here as well. if you don't buy one, then you've got zero chance. thank you so much. the drawing will be tonight at 10:59. we're going to have the winning numbers on fox 5 local news at 11:00. if no one wins tonight at alex was saying, the powerball jackpot is likely to soar above $1 billion. when fox 5 local news at

dramatically too. but we're not going to have the minus wild chills at least. let's look outside here now because we've got rain. we spoke about it earlier saying that it was going to start moving in and it southernly has lived up to that forecast. it is becoming fairly wednesdayspread and it will continue tonight as well. there's some fog out there so do be careful if you are heading out anywhere. and that's going to last to the early hours of your sunday too. so if you're going anywhere early in the morning, morning services or anywhere, be careful with the fog. here's a look at that wide swath of rain moving up from the south all associated with a frontal system and it's going to become heavy at times. i can't rule out maybe an isolated rumble of thunder, a shot of lightning here and there. we've had reports of some lightning in west virginia so there is a chance of seeing an isolated strike. here's a look a little bit closer to home. we have some heavier pockets of rainfall here. this rain is going to be
continue to be steady well in the overnight hours tonight. so we're going to get some improvement. the good news is by the afternoon hours, by the time the game starts, this should be well out of the way and it will be much, much drier. so that's at least some good news. but that system will continue to move its way through. we also have a ridge of high pressure as you saw pulling out. so between those two we're going to get a pretty tight pressure gradient and all that translates into are some gusty winds. but those winds are going to be a huge factor for the afternoon hour for us. but here is a look at future cast and we'll have a little bit of a timing for you. as i said heavier in the overnight hours. this is 2:00 a.m. and i wouldn't be surprised if we see a lightning strike or thunder. here's your tailgating, i can't rule out that you might not have a spinningle or a light shower. so don't be surprised if you do see it. here's 5:00 by kickoff we're doing well. areas to our far west there is some snow, higher elevations,
potomac high lands, they're expected to see an inch of snowfall because that cold air is going to be settled in there. 8:00 at night we're dry still but this is when it starts to get cold with that temperature dropping. early morning rain, but by the time we get into the afternoon that cold air starts to kick in and that's where we're going to see chilly conditions and those significant wind dpts chills. highs tomorrow will be into the low 50s and 60s everywhere. it's going to feel a lot colder with those winds and when they start to kick in they're going to move into the northwest. gusting up to 30 miles per hour or more. tailgating will be into the upper 50s, that's not too bad. by the time we get to kickoff, you can see the temperature gradually starting to drop. 20s and 30s primarily to the west as we're going to see those real low temperatures and the wind chill continuing through in the overnight hours. here's your game time temp.
take a look, real dramatic drop when we get to 8:00, 9:00 where we're going to be into the 40s and the 30s here and those winds being strong. here's your forecast. 1:00 tailgating expect to see maybe a chance of a shower, partly cloudy skies 60 degrees, windy 53 degrees. but look at this. finally dry but much colder. so 49 degrees for tonight, fog, rain overnight hours, clouds lingering in fog in your morning hours and then we are talking 60 degrees for the daytime high and your fox 5 accuweather 7-day forecast showing you that we've got a pretty cold monday to deal with. look at the temperature. 38 degrees once we hit 60 on sunday, we've been in this roller coaster pattern all winter, it's not changing. we get back to seasonal in the 40s and some sunshine. we have a clipper system to keep an eye on but you know what, 35, 37 for daytime highs and 20s at night, it's a january reality check as i say.
but for the redskins, we're keeping those 50s and 60s around at least for part of the day. >> we've had it coming. >> if it wasn't cold it wouldn't be football weather, right? >> there you go. >> thank you, gwen. remember you can track the weather 24/7 on the go with your mobile device download the fox 5 news and fox 5 weather apps by searching dc news and dc weather in your app store. they are free. great news for uber users in the dmv. uber is cutting their prices for the next month or so the ride service is cutting the cost by 10%. the company says they cut the price because most people stay home a lot after the holidays. no word on how long the uber price cut will last. we know kirk cousins has plenty of skills when it comes to football, but did you know that he is also pretty big into playing fetch? cousins and his wife are big animal lovers, they have taken on a huge responsibility opening up their home to dogs whose

a very tough pup to part with. >> she had a hundred questions for us. >> and she made sure we walked our other two dogs with her and they interviewed a few other people but she was quite happy with us. >> the kiss ins continued to open their home to pets in need for several organizations including virginia based friends of homeless animals when is dedicated to saving abandoned and abused pets like gracie and her new siblings. to have someone as busy as the redskins quarterback demonstrate how easy fostering is sets a tremendous sample for others. >> so you were kirk cousins' best friends for month. bark if you think he may be nervous going into this game. no bark. just sit here and stare and pant if you think he's prepared and he is going to lead the redskins to a win.
years tomorrow. so what changed? the culture. the addition -- leadership and accountability to the team. all guys that have super bowls on their resumes. all guys acquired by scot mccloughan, that new blood seemed to resuscitate a moribund franchise. >> resuscitate here in a way bringing him here the veterans he put in place. >> having guys around like that it helps you mature faster. >> he's played in the super bowl, he's played in more playoff games than i have. those kind of things that a lot of us don't have on our resume that we can pull information from him and knowledge from him and just try to gain it.

the season. so it bodes well for the redskins but they can't take them out. it's still aaron rogers and company as well. as long as the weight has felt for this week, the wait for a playoff win has felt like an eternity. the last "w" ten years ago. no doubt fedex will be rocking tomorrow. players i talked to this week that have been in these types of games said the atmosphere in playoff games is nothing like what they see during the regular season. the game has been a sell-out since hours after the tickets went on sale and the redskins feed off the crowd. they're 6 and 2 at home and in those 6 wins kirk cousins has thrown 14 touchdowns and zero interceptions. that excitement goes beyond the stands and on to the redskins side lines. >> what i noticed the biggest difference nothing to do with on the field. i remember it being an electric environment, very exciting a
